    Hello Uor,

    I am considering a LJ template with the following:

    90/40/95

    GM LJ
    GM Swords
    GM Tactics
    GM Anatomy
    GM Magery
    GM Resist
    GM Eval

    My question here is about mana regen with zero med skill. If in leather armor about how long would it take to regen the mana spent from say a 6th or 7th circle spell and if the regen would be then half as fast in studded leather and glacial in anything more than studded? Last, is bone amor the same regen rate as armor above studded leather?

    I am also interested in others posting their templates and advice running a hybrid LJ, thanks.

    I run a thief without med... it takes a long time... so much so that I'm thinking about adding med.

    Remove Eval, and use healing (bandages) to stay alive on the run. Since you don't have med, its not like your going to be casting offensive spells, just greater heals (which eval does not increase their value).

    You will need lightning wand or exp pots to finish people on the run, its the hardest part of using a LJ.

    Armor
    Studded and Bone armor both have a 50% mana regen reduction.
    Leather will allow 100% mana regen, which will be just slightly better because you will lack the med skill.

    I'm an old OSI player from back in the 90's, but I never got around to making a LJ. (too much time as a red tinkerer, I guess)

    I am new to the forums and I can't tell if Mandevu is being serious or not, so I'll ask directly. Giving up tactics for med seems like a weird call to me. If the whole point of LJ is more Axe damage, why give up so much from having tactics at 0?

    My suspicion is that he is joking, and I should continue to cannibalize my meditation now that magery is 100 in favor of LJ, Swords and Tactics.

    Personally, I've found the pure lumberjacking template to be a bit underwhelming for general purpose PVM (assuming that is your goal, since you didn't state), and have been steadily pumping up my int so that I can supplement my damage (and tanking) with a daemon. I've been seriously considering dropping resist or healing for med, and just relying on gheals.

    Hadn't really considered dropping tactics, when I plug the numbers into the weapon damage spreadsheet that was posted on here, the damage of gm lumber/30 tactics is about equal to gm tactics/0 lumber, so at that point might as well drop lumber and get the use of more weapon types.
